    IMO get Stokes and it's gonna start the crumble.

    I think if they get Buttler & Stokes out before 160-170 its over.

    Stokes has played some sensational innings this WC. If he goes, you gotta think it's over..

    On that note .. what a ball. So close!!

    No brainer. I think they'll be in huge trouble if they even lose one wicket in the next 10 overs. :pray:

    The only thing to make it funnier is if Stokes gets run out.

    Cricinfo is saying they go to super over. :shocked:

    I think in a normal match New Zealand wins. But with it being the finals they are doing a super over, which I don’t know what that is

    Scores are tied at the end of play, so it doesn't matter if England are bowled out. Super over rules are that you start fresh with all batsmen available.

    No, it would still be a tie in a normal match - wickets are irrelevant.

    I'm just glad England didn't win by being the higher ranked team which I was worried about.

    One over each, most runs wins. England have to be red hot faves with their hitters.

    Fuckin gutted for NZ. To lose a WC because you hit 1 less boundary in the super over (after two ties) is heartbreaking.

    Fair play to England. Butler and Stokes dug in and Stokes took it home.

    Absolute bullshit rule to determine a final.

    Indeed. What about the 2 wickets NZ took vs. 0 from England? How about whoever hits a 6 wins the tie breaker. Fuck this super over rule.

    If England had lost because if that rule, you'd not have heard the end of it.

    there are 2 things that kinda even it out to me. 1 the wide called on the first ball of the NZ SO was not a wide, was over the inside half of the line after the bat had already shuffled across his stumps a good bit. Secondly i do think NZ had the better part of the conditions of the pitch tbqh

    I got to say I’ve watched the highlights so many times. Just a fucking unreal match. Sad most people in this country have no idea how exciting that truly was

    Not getting too excited yet because we've been here before (1-0) and lost. But it's a nice start and I'd rather be in our position than their's. :wink:

    englands batting is such a mess. Root has fallen of a bit, bairstow, stokes and butler are all not in the finest of form and whoever else they line up is worse at batting than the all rounders that they leave on the bench. Also their bowling is very reliant on movement in the air

    Man. What an innings. Absolute unit.

    On a side note - in Utrecht right now and hitting up Eindhoven for a day trip tomorrow

    Well done, boys - mission accomplished. Did it the hard way but we've been the better side by miles in the series and would have been an injustice if England had somehow fluked a win.
